Safer 3rd Party Access to Google Webmaster Tools


Google has just announced a new authorisation feature for webmasters who wish to share their Google Webmaster Tools account with limited administrative privileges.

Often webmasters feel hesitant when giving access to their SEO company in fear they may change things without their knowledge. Now it is possible to give limited access privileges similar to Google Analytics access and share your data while keeping their settings safe.

We propose that this mode of access should become a new standard for all agencies accessing prospective client data for purposes of pre-sales research, quotations, estimates and similar activities which do not require making changes.

Note that you are not allowed to use an email not associated with a Google account.
